Title: Volkswagen Beetles and Buses
Author: Russell Hayes
Format: ARC ebook
Dates Read: October 6, 2020
This is an illustrated history to celebrate the 75th and 70th anniversaries of the Volkswagen Beetles and Buses.
I am a huge fan of Volkswagen Beetles and it is my dream to one day own one. When I saw this book on Netgalley I couldn’t resist requesting it. The history of the Volkswagen’s two iconic vehicles was fascinating, especially in their creation. I never realized that Hitler played a part in the creation and production of the original Volkswagen Beetles, then called the KdF-Wagen.
I found the history of this brand and vehicles fascinating, especially since this book included vintage photographs, magazines, prototypes, and ads. It does get very technical about the differences between the different years and models though. I understood very little of those parts but I got the general idea of what changes were being made.
Overall, this was a wonderful illustrated history book. If you are a Volkswagen fan I highly recommend checking this book out.
